Simple Blackened Chicken

We are back. Paradise was amazing. Shave ice, POG juice (Passion, Orange, Guava), teri burgers, loco moco, and, of course, pineapple, are among the food highlights. Spending every day under the sun was a perfect start to summer and this recipe is a perfect, simple way to ease back into a daily cooking schedule. It is great for summer and spring and fall and winter. :) It is savory and, most importantly, juicy delicious!

INGREDIENTS:
(double, triple, quadruple as necessary)

1 chicken breast
1 teaspoon garlic salt
1 teaspoon lemon pepper
1 Tablespoon olive oil 

DIRECTIONS:

Using a mallet, beat down chicken breasts until about 1 to 1-1/2 inch thick. Sprinkle garlic salt and lemon pepper on both sides of the breast. Pat down.

In a saucepan over medium heat, pour about 2-3 Tablespoons olive oil and heat through. Add seasoned chicken to the pan and cover with a lid. Let cook for about 4-5 minutes on each side until cooked throughout and all pinkness is gone.

Serve and enjoy.
